Paulo sure does love to have daydreams about how happy he’d be with Lucy.
Makes you wonder if he made the right choice with Jasmine…

The best part about this page is that Lucy is afraid of bodies of water.

Oh. No. I wonder what he’ll discover. I’m sure it will end in Lucy being happy he still likes her, and Paulo attempting to kill Mike. It will be grand.

Comment ID #215079

For anyone that recalls the state Lucy was in when we last saw her it is safe to say Paulo is in for a disappointing surprise.
I like the coloring in this page, the hearts are a nice mix of pink and violet and the shading is damn good.
As for Paulo’s dirty imagination we can all agree that he still has a huuuuge hard on for Lucy even when he’s with Jasmine. No news there. What will be a big thing to talk about is where this will lead to. This is a perfect setup for how the others are going to react to what Mike said to Lucy and if Lucy will even tell Paulo or the others anything. I’ll bet my money on Paulo knowing something is off obviously.

Can’t wait for the next update.

Hahahaaaa…Paulo is not gonna be happy with the Lucy he encounters methinks.

Wow. Talk about denial. Paulo may be happy with jazzy, but if his fantasy cat ever gave him the OK, he’d be stuck. As emo as lucy can be, at the end of the day she’s always the girl paulo can’t get, and god damit i can relate. Date lots of girls except the one u want, and when that girl gives u the green light u realize how she its not right, just like in that chapter where he had her, and still was a good guy. Love him or hate him, paulo is the every man, wants to do the right thing and even he gets **** on, like with those 2 bitches. Point, Love Paolo. O and i know i spelled his name wrong twice, deslexsic and a little buzzed. Night night :)

I can’t wait to see how poor Lucy is doing :[ If she’s still down in the dumps after what Mike has done then I’m sure Paulo can boost her mood. I’m starting to become a Paulo x Lucy supporter instead of Mike x Lucy. After the way he acted I really don’t think he deserves her. Paulo is already being really thoughtful after noticing her absence and going to see her.

Paulo: Oh I’m fine, thank you for asking, miss. I just thought about bringing your daughter a present.
Lucys Mom: Ohhhh isn’t that sweet of you, bring it right up, she’s about to take a bath, just step in.

Should of known Paulo would end up thinkning something like that when trying to do something nice for Lucy.

Though I HATE PauloxLucy with a passion, I can’t denie he is a true and dear friend to her and the others.

I really think he has a better chance with Jasmine over Lucy, so I hope these new “odd feelings” he’s been getting since “Carry me” don’t cause harm.

Also….why do I get the feeling Lucy won’t be at her house?….

Well, looks like it was cake, and if that tossing from the previous page didn’t splatter it all over the inside of the box (because you know it would), then I am going to be severely disappointed in your continuity. I fully expect Lucy to make a dour face at a completely mashed up piece of cake, or I’M going to make a dour face at the fact you ignored basic physics. And either way I’m going to be annoyed at Paulo for being so thoughtless.

Oh hell….

I -really- hope this chapter doesn’t get depressing…. both of the previous two were (admitedly the last one was an awesome depressing, and has semented the love of abbey in many fans). Please don’t let Paulo succum to the emo….

God, between Paulo’s relationship issues (not really fair to your girlfriend that you still have such a megaboner over another girl), his rivalry with Mike (which I still highly doubt would even remotely go well; Mike’s dilluding himself there), and Lucy’s depression (I doubt she’s going to be nearly that attractive when you meet her, Paulo), I’m so scared this chapter’s going to end up being another depressing one, and Paulo’s not supposed to do awkward!

Still getting used to the art style shifts. Looking back at the older colorings makes me go “what?”.

Dear god, lucy is going to eventually inadvertently cause a tear between paulo and jazzy. It’s obvious paulo still has the hots for lucy and of course since he’s a confused hormonally imbalanced adolescent, he doesn’t know the difference between love and lust. Oh and let’s not forget paulo has white knight syndrome, so yeah…., and you guys give sandy **** for inadvertently breaking up relationships.

Paulo may be in for an unpleasant surprise if Lucy is still in the same state as when we last saw her. i hope Paulo’s visit can help cheer Lucy up and all i want for everyone i ever meet or know is for them to be happy may they be real or fictional (yes even mike to those that may ask). the only one who i think ill of is Alejandro or as others know him confrontation cat.

Comment ID #215162

I have been concerned by the way Paulo behaves, thinks and acts regarding Lucy. Seems to me Paulo is having a really hard time making his mind and determining what he wants. Keeping a steady relationship with Jasmine while fantasizing about Lucy are ambiguous actions and lukewarm approaches at emotional relationships. Although one can see how this is excusable and natural in a teenager, in keeping that up Paulo is at risk of ending up with either cat, methinks.

I’m not sure if this is going to be a “mucho feels” chapter or not, but I can only imagine how it’ll play out if it is, seeing as Lucy was pretty much emotionally destroyed last time we saw her

like, Paulo looks through the window and Lucy is dying her fur black
Joy Division playing in the background
plans for a school shooting all mapped out on the wall
Paulo slips the cake through the mail slot and backs away slowly
“next chapter begins on monday!”

“chapter 71: the reckoning”

Well, there went my illusion of a Paulo-Jazz chapter. Onwards to the depressed Lucy!

Oh, the brain, why do you conjure up the opposite of what is intended :/

Not this AGAIN. Well, here comes three months of Lucy being a %^@#$, Paulo chasing tail, and another month of Paulo and Jazz drama. Will we ever get back to what is going on with Lucy and Mike? These side stories are ok, but they last twice as long as the main story does.

I absolutely love the watercolour style of these pages so far. Keep up the good work! :)

actually it was less me defending her in that line and more me using my one free cheap shot on the anti-sandy fans. i mean come on, how many cheap shots have the anti-sandy’s taken in the past few months, i think i’m entitled to at least make a move when i get a clear, clean shot, muahahaha.

On my serious note: Yeah i can kind of see that but i hope paulo doesn’t screw the pooch (pun kind of not intended) by decimating Jazmine. Actually i personally think Jazmine works better for Paulo, but i get the feeling Jazmine’s heart is gonna get broken before the comic ends. Just the vibe i’m getting from the path the story has been taking.

Is it just me, or is Lucy’s hair growing by the chapter?

“slice of your cake” Good god golly, I need to use that sometime later.

If you have yet to see what some have, you may find her sadness more annoying than you should. Loss of your first and best friend and being psychologically attacked by that friend in response to trying to make up with that friend. Is it any wonder Lucy is so down? Mike’s actions hurt her pretty deeply. Just like when he abandoned her for Sandy, but worse. Depending on how forgiving Lucy is, Lucy’s mother is the only non-hostile left now in the family.

We shall see. :x Alcoholic amnesia…

@Comic: That Paulo stays loyal is a balm to her heart. He temporarily ignored his phobia to defend his friends, after all.

Hoheh! April 26, 2012, 9:56 AM EST.

Well, I hope Lucy is doing better. if she is not, well I’m sure paulo will help in a way.

this next thing is completely not real and is from a dream I had.

I had this dream where all the characters from BCB were trying to get some treasure, and Mike and Lucy were in front and when Mike was starting to go faster Lucy grabbed his tail, he tripped, and she ran right over him. then she got to the treasure, she looked back and saw Mike look sad, so she said, “I know, why don’t we split it?” Mike looked at her with really mad eyes. then he looked kinda sad and said, “would you really do that for me?” and then my dream ended . it was all anime like for some reason… :question:

Oh, jeeze, I can’t tell if I’m going to love this chapter (being a PauloxLucy shipper) or if this is just gonna make me shake my head and laugh.
Or perhaps both.
Both would be fine.

Well, on the bright side for Paulo, he might end up getting exactly what he wants. I mean, Lucy almost slept with him one time before because of depression, this amount of inner turmoil might be so much that she persuades him. Or, she might just be some psychotic mess, and may or may not even bother to notice Paulo. Or, she might try to persuade him, and he’ll refuse her again, but this time, she goes deeper into depression because of it. OR, well, I’ll keep the rest to myself. ;)

Paulo is a good friend even though he acts like a jerk and a perv (or in this case thinking like a perv) he will try to help a friend if he thinks something is wrong. i sincerely hope he can help calm Lucy’s inner turmoil.
